Cowl

Standard

Yogurt pot Benji

I finished the cowl that I mentioned on the previous post. It is warm and snuggly but there is something not perfect about it. I think it’s the yarn that I chose and the colour. It somehow looks a bit “immature” and amateurish ( which it is!) Ah well, lesson learned. I will now attempt a more sophisticated cowl perhaps more chunky and cables and clever twists!

Gorgeous dog Benji is making me move. I was out walking him at 7.30 this morning. It was beautiful on the country lanes so autumnal and brisk. Benji is settling in well and feels part of the family. I have now got him pet insured, and food adjusted. He loves to lick the yogurt pot, run fast off the lead and sit on our knees!

We are continuing to work on the house and do all the odd jobs that got missed because we’ve been away so much this year. I need to work on some crafts for the craft fair I’m doing in a few week. I’ve made tea cup candles and was thinking about putting some candle making kits together as well. I must stop buying tea cups,wax,vintage lace etc etc…….

Watch this spot as I am off to a vintage fair and might just find more vintage treasures!

Busy Days and Lazy Ways

Standard

Time flies when you are busy and I have been very busy! I have been making candles for a village craft fair that I am going to in a couple of months. It is unusual for me to be so organised I’m more into last minute panic. I also sell on my etsy shop which is noddfacrafts@etsy.com The candles are hand poured by my own fair hand into vintage china cupsImage I use Soy wax for its slow burning, smoke free, bright flame qualities. The china cups and saucers are getting harder to find at a reasonable price but I enjoy the productivity therapy! Most of the cups have come from charity shops.

And the lazy ways? Why that’s sitting in bed with a cup of tea and my iPad whilst I write this blog ( or read my favourite other blogs) Bliss!
